    Colonial Quito

    17 reviews

    Quito is divided into "La Mariscal", the tourist district south of the airport, and "Old Town Quito", the colonial area that is a World Heritage Site. I stayed in old town; the streets are filled with locals and country visitors selling their goods. I felt very safe; there are police and/or military (maybe a few too many) on nearly every ...

    La Mitad del Mundo

    24 reviews

    Our group hopped off the bus and checked out "The Equator." The big fun for us was arranging a photo where all 12 of us held hands in the center of the line, and straddling north and south. I'm a fan of theres sorts of places. A combination of the celebrity of it (I've been there!) and the absurdity. If ...

    San Francisco Church

    11 reviews

    The San Francisco Church at the Plaza de Armas is right in the center of the hub of action in Quito especially on the weekends when locals come out to see live commentary and street performances, likely after service. This is one spectacular church!

    La Basílica

    9 reviews

    While the walk up the hillside to get to the Basillica from the old town center will likely leave you huffing and puffing, it's definitely worth it. The place is enormous, and has a sort of dark, ominous vibe that I found really interesting. Be sure to climb up the stairwells leading up to the towers, as the views are ...

    La Mariscal

    10 reviews

    This is supposedly the "tourist area" of Quito, and the larger streets are lined with fancier shops. There are quite a few hostels in this area, and quite a few night clubs. I stayed in the area one night and was warned by several locals to only carry as much cash as I needed, since stick-ups were common. Though the ...

    Museo Guayasamín

    5 reviews

    Guayasamín is one of Ecuador's most renown artists and truly one of my global favorites. The warm and inviting museum is a must-see for any visit to Quito. The museum, perched in one of Quito's steep hillside neighborhoods, overlooks the downtown and is graced with beautiful sculpture gardens. The museum itself is spacious and well laid out, really maximizing the ...

    El Panecillo Hill and Momument

    7 reviews

    Quito's version of the Statue of Liberty - only it's a winged Virgin Mary rather than an incarnation of Egyptian Isis. Although I've spent years living in Quito, I actually only visited the statue once - on my first visit. It's a one-time kind of place - fantastic vistas of Quito and her surrounding volcanoes, but once you've seen it, ...

    TelefériQo

    6 reviews

    The teleferiqo is yet another thing you do just for the sake of it. I wouldn't say it's spectacular, but it's a nice weekend activity and the views are great if you've got good weather. It is by far the best view of Quito you can get. I was really tempted to explore more of the trails along Pichincha, but ...

    Plaza foch is the heart of the marsical district and serves as the perfect meeting up spot for tourist and locals embarking on a night on the town. The plaza is flanked by restaurants and cafes, nearly all of which have outdoor seating spilling out into the plaza, or balconies overlooking the pedestrians below. It's a fun spot to grab ...

    Avenida Amazonas

    5 reviews

    Major thorough way in the city of Quito, Avenida Amazonas is a great walking street that is dotted by stores, restaurants and a ton of juice bars. On our day of visit, and possibly on all sundays, the Avenida Amazonas is closed to motor traffic and opened up for pedestrians and bicycles.

    Guagua Pichincha

    3 reviews

    An immense, stunningly beautiful active stratovolcano rising right out of the city of Quito. Guagua - meaning "baby" is the younger of two peaks on Pichincha Volcano, the older peak referred to as Rucu. Lacking the glacial covering of many of Ecuador's massive volcanoes, Pichchincha is a highly accessible peak, even possible as a day hike from the city.
